Metro police sweep Prince George’s stations

The Metro transit police, along with the county and municipal police departments in Prince George’s, have announced plans for what Metro calls “a major, high-visibility crime prevention and anti-terrorism event” at 15 stations during the afternoon rush.

This will involve more than 100 officers from the various departments, so expect to see a heavy police presence in the stations and on trains in the county from 4 to 7 p.m.
